Remembering Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose through these films on his 125th birth anniversary

Subhash Chandra Bose popularly known as Netaji was one of the iconic freedom fighters of all time. His defiant patriotism made him a hero in India. Subhas Chandra Bose was born to Prabhavati Bose and Janakinath Bose on 23 January 1897 in Cuttack, what is today the state of Odisha in India. He was sent to Cambridge University to pursue his studies in civil services.
